A postdoctoral position is available in the laboratory of Manuel Mendoza at the Institute of Genetics and Molecular and Cellular Biology (IGBMC) in Strasbourg, France. The Mendoza laboratory studies how chromosome segregation and cytokinesis are coordinated with each other, and how the Aurora-B-dependent “NoCut” checkpoint regulates cytokinesis abscission when chromatin bridges are delayed in the cell division site (1). In addition, we are interested in mechanisms that establish differences in nuclear organization after asymmetric cell division, and in how nuclear pore complexes control the establishment of cell identity (2). We are seeking to recruit an outstanding, highly motivated scientist to work on either of these topics. For further information regarding the position and our research interests, please visit our webpage http://igbmc.fr/research/department/1/team/136/ or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Applicants should hold a Ph.D. in biology, biochemistry or related areas with at least one first-author publication in a peer-reviewed international journal. The ability to work independently and strong skills in molecular and cell biology are required; experience in live cell microscopy, yeast genetics and/or mammalian tissue culture would be an advantage.
